I used to be hesitant to put banana bread and muffin recipes on my blog. Because, as we all know, the internet is saturated with them. There probably isn’t one blogger without a banana recipe of some sort. However, despite all this, I’ve found that it’s still possible to create fairly unique recipes using bananas. For instance, my Bone Broth Protein Banana Bread and these Mini Tahini Banana Muffins.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions regarding this tahini muffin recipe:
Can These Muffins Be Full Sized?
These muffins can be full sized, rather than mini muffins. The recipe will make 6 full sized muffins. However, the cooking time will increase 5-10 minutes.
Do I Have to Use Tahini?
No, any drippy nut or seed butter will work. Almond butter, sunflower seed butter or peanut butter would be good alternatives.
Is there a Substitution for Ground Flax?
Ground flax not only adds to the taste, but the texture of these muffins as well. It helps bind the ingredients together. That being said, the best substitutions would be ground chia seed or eggs. Please note, these substitutions have not been tested, so I cannot guarantee the best results.Print
